Yesterday I was bitten by a stray puppy in my own house for that matter! It got in through the gate and my dog went after it. As soon as my dog ran past me while chasing the puppy, I grabbed the collar of my dog but the puppy lunged for an attack on my dog and I got bitten instead.
Here's the bad thing, I had the puppy caught and brought to the vet which they diagnosed as rabid because it had all the symptoms...frothing, tendency to bite, twitching. So the vet put it to sleep, sent it to the animal center and advised me to go for rabies shots since they were 100% certain it was rabid.
Well, I went to San Lazaro yesterday for rabies shot and boy do they hurt, both on my arms and on the pocket. I got 1 ATS, 1 Tetavax, 1 PDEV and no ARS yet because it's out of stock as a result, I have to look for this other alternative to ARS which costs around P2500 a shot. Sheesh! Now I have to got back for treatment on sheduled days to receive these expensive shots.
My question is, am I considered rabid at this point? Should people be drinking from my glass or using my spoon? Or can my boyfriend even kiss me? Also, what sickness will I get from this. Please help. I am extremely worried because my great-grandma died from a puppy bite.
